Implants are artificial tooth roots made of tissue-compatible materials that are planted (implanted) into the jaw and grown together with the bone. The new dental prosthesis is then placed on this root. Different lengths and diameters of the implants enable an optimal adaptation of the dental prosthesis to the natural shape of your jaw. Today, titan is the material of choice for implants. It has proven itself for decades in medicine through its tissue compatibility. In very rare cases of incompatibility, we also offer implants made of zirconium.
For the patients, missing gum on the tooth surface means not only an aesthetic affect but sometimes also a strong hypersensitivity on these places. Through mucogingival surgery, such defects can be remedied using a free mucous membrane graft or through a pure connective tissue graft.
In this treatment, the apex of a tooth is removed under local anesthesia by an access from outside through the jawbone. Such a measure is applied, if a chronic apical ostitis occurs
(= chronic inflammation of the bone of the apex). This measure may be carried out only when the root filling is otherwise satisfactory.
